efficiency and innovation. It was the first Canadian site to participate
in NACO (the Name Authority Cooperative Project) and is the home of the
Cataloguer's Toolbox web site.

The Head of the Bibliographic Control Services Division reports directly

in the central branch of the library system. The division head has a
